Mixing packages between releases is in general a very bad idea and
likely to break all over the place. 

When you say you updated "only" those 4 packages, you mean you using
rpm --force or something? Updating those with yum would likely result
in pulling in most of rawhide, leaving you a hopeless melange of f16
and rawhide. 

If you must have the versions from rawhide, pull down the src.rpms and
rebuild for f16. Of course you may need to adjust for versions in f16,
